She Knew All the Sad Songs

She sits back and watches

Day after day

Not realizing that

She's fading away

All the days and the nights

She feels so alone

Staying up late

Waiting by the phone

Waiting for the friend

Who would never call

Waiting for someone

To catch her fall

She can't hold on

She's slipping away

Why can't they see

She's not okay?

All the times they ignored her

The girl who knew all the sad songs

It wasn't their problem that

She didn't belong

If only they'd look closer

Then they could really see

The girl who knew all the sad songs

Was really me…
